Change agents wanted

Our sole purpose to make an impact for our clients, and to do that we need agents of change; people who want to make a real difference, and who will chase greatness.

We invest heavily in personal development, because talent keeps our business growing.

The Brand Agency team has a diverse range of personalities (and to be honest, some of them are pretty weird). But we all share the same values.

We live and breathe these values. They describe who we are and determine who works for us. We ask our people to display these behavior traits:

Be ambitious. Set big goals. Aim high and then keep going. Turn a cold shoulder to ‘doing what’s safe’. Be courageous. Get excited about everything you do. Probe what’s possible. There are no stupid questions.

Be agile. Act nimbly. Get prepared to do it a different way. Stay responsive. Get smart. Have a bit of common sense. Do it efficiently. Get it done.

Be inventive. Constantly seek new and unique creative solutions to business problems. Be curious and challenge convention. Effectiveness is as much about the question as it is the answer.

Be involved. Become engrossed with your client’s work. Get out in the world. Inhale life and art and culture and people and science and technology and nature and whatever else you can find. Then plunge into your work. And take personal responsibility for results.

We’re looking for an experienced, creative UI/UX designer to join our crew. Someone that resonates with our philosophy that good design both looks good and works well. The perfect candidate has experience in a variety of design formats (visual identity/logo, web, print) – with an emphasis on web/digital work, is confident collaborating in a small-team environment and in presenting work to clients, and can balance working thoughtfully and efficiently on a diverse range of projects.

What you need to succeed and thrive in this role:

  • Full proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite

  • Comfortable working on a variety of projects across industries
  • Confidence in presenting your work and communicating directly with clients
  • Experience planning and executing redesigns as well as new-concept design projects, from start to finish

  • Stay current with UX/design-industry trends
  • (Humble) confidence in your own design abilities

We’re looking for someone who wants “more than a job” – iBrand Africa is not the kind of company where you punch a clock and call it a day. This must be a role you can see yourself in now and growing within for the foreseeable future. We aspire to be small, offering a highly personal level of service to our clients. Thinking entrepreneurially and critically is a day to day requirement. We have a lot of fun and work really hard. The day to day is fun, and expectations are high.

If you’re a good fit, Send your resume, portfolio, and most importantly, what makes you stand out to careers@ibrandafrica.com to start the conversation.

As we continue to grow, we’re looking for an experienced front-end web developer to join our team. You’ll be tasked with combining form and function to create engaging, intuitive, UX bliss on the web. Partnering with our in-house development, content, and design team, you can expect and should be comfortable with the following:

  • You will be working on a variety of content-based sites that are almost always built in WordPress. Existing experience of the WordPress CMS is imperative for this role.
  • You will be regularly converting Sketch and/or Photoshop mockups to responsive WordPress websites. You should also be comfortable making modifications to existing sites and developing static HTML templates for web and email clients.
  • You will need solid experience in HTML, CSS, Javascript, and WordPress PHP development. Experience with API integration is also beneficial.
  • We test rigorously on all devices (desktop and mobile), so you must be comfortable testing on all modern browsers, as well as on iOS and Android devices, both during development and during the Q&A process.
  • You will be migrating WordPress websites from our staging server to live hosting environments, setting up databases, managing DNS and email changes, etc.
  • You will communicate regularly with clients and the other members of our team, both in-office and remote. This is not a “just let me code” position, and it will be imperative that you are comfortable communicating and collaborating with developers, our staff, and directly with clients.
  • You will regularly use our project management, communication, and collaboration tools (Basecamp, Slack, Dropbox, Google Drive, Bugherd, etc.)

If you want to be a part of our creative team, please send your resume, portfolio with examples of your development/programming work, and anything else that makes you stand out to careers@ibrandafrica.com

If you’ve got a creative eye, a knack for engagement, a wealth of ideas, and a drive to meet and exceed big goals, you might be the perfect fit for our Marketing and Social/Content Internship. This position is specifically for Summer 2016, but if it’s a good fit, we’ll extend it into the summer. And if you really blow us away…who knows?

What We Want

As a member of the team, we’re looking for someone who takes initiative, hits the ground running with ideas, exhibits a strong work ethic, follows through, and comes to work with a “can do” attitude from day one. This isn’t a “grunt work” internship that’ll have you filing and answering the phone. Specifically, you should have experience managing a variety of social accounts from a “brand” perspective – that could include your personal brand or one from a previous position.

What You Can Expect

The internship is 20 hours per week (paid), and is eligible for college credit, if applicable. Our office is collaborative and open, with work stations ranging from our reclaimed wood conference table and traditional desks to comfy couches and bean bag chairs. We work together, communicate often, and almost always have a Spotify playlist playing throughout the office.

The Specifics

You’ve got:

  • 2+ years of college under your belt – we’re looking for rising juniors, seniors, or recent grads.
  • Knowledge of/experience with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
  • Top-notch writing skills.
  • A design-ish, trend-spotting, creative eye.
  • A grasp on social analytics.

You might have (bonus):

  • Experience in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Adobe Creative Suite.
  • Experience with social media marketing tools (ex. Buffer, Hootsuite, etc.).
  • Photography skills.
